Patriot’s Day in Fort Hill
I’ve been absent from the blog for quite some time while I work on Bartlett Events. But fear not, we’re working to incorporate a visual history of the Bartlett Yard site into our programming in collaboration with the Roxbury Historical Society.
Meanwhile, it’s almost Patriot’s Day. And while most Bostonians think of Patriot’s Day as Marathon Monday, some of us still remember that it is a celebration of the Battles of Lexington and Concord.
Every year, we commemorate Patriot’s Day in Roxbury at a number of locations including our own First Church, where William Dawes left on his ride to warn the Patriots of the impending attack. Don’t miss it! The event at the Church starts promptly at 9 AM.
